This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

As the compiler of this Work has been entirely destitute of all help that might 
have been expected from other Dictionaries of the English and Portuguese Lan- 
g^uages, it has been attended with much difficulty, and unavoidable delay. There 
was, indeed, a thing called a Portuguese and English Vocabulary published 
many years ago, of which I scarcely know how to speak, lest to those, who 
are unacquainted with it, I might appear unjust in my account, I shall only 
say, what every one, who will compare it with the following work, must be 
convinced of, I say with truth, that it has not been to me of the smallest use. 

The only Dictionary from which I have received great assistance has Ijeen that 
of the learned and laborious Bluteau, who spent above thirty years Tn collect- 
ing words, proverbs, and phrases, from upwards of two thousand volumes, for 
his Portuguese and Latin Dictionary. But even in this work, besides its de- 
ficiency of many words, my hopes were often disappointed. Bluteau himself 
confesses that he does not understand the true meaning of many words, or that 
he cannot find the Latin word answering to the Portuguese, and brings often- 
times only a quotation wherein the Portuguese word is found, in order to ex- 
plain it, but to no purpose ; so that one may say, " Sicut tenebrtB ejus ita et 
iumen ejus." 

Such have been the obstacles which have both rendered my task in a parti^ 
cular manner arduous, and retarded the publication of the present work: in the 
execution of which I endeavoured — 
L To make it as copious as possible. 

IL To exemplify the diflTerent significations of the same word in both lan- 
guages with such accuracy and clearness, as might give a perfect and distinct 
knowledge to the learner, of their true genius and idioms. 

IIL Generally to authorise, in the Second Part, the woids by the names of the 
principal English writers, in whose works they are found. 

IV. To point out the Etymology of many Portuguese words from other Ian- 
guages, not omitting even the Arabic and Persian. 

V. To insert a considerable number of technical words. 

VL To indicate the Portuguese and English words that are either obsolete, or 
httle used ; and those that are only poetical. 

FinaUy, the reader will find inserted in their proper places, all words that have 
crept into the Portuguese language from the conquest of that nation, and its com- 
merce upon the coasts of Asia, Africa, and America: especially the terms o( coins, 
measures^ offices, titles, &c. which are used in those parte of the world, or are' 
to be met with in the Portuguese books containing travels through Ethiopia, 
Arabia, Persia, and other remote countries. 

Such has been the plan of this work, in the compiling of which the Author has 
for years laboured with diUgence, and he hopes with success. 

August,\773. ANTONIO VIEYRA. 


I HAVE been induced, by the numerous faults in Vieyra's Dictionary, to suggest to 
the Publishers the propriety of sending forth an improved Edition. They have 
agreed with me in opinion, and the present is the result of my labours. Indeed, 
from the extensive reform I have been enabled to effecjt, the Work assumes a 
character altogether different from any previous Edition of it ; and, in its improved 
form, will, I trust, greatly facilitate the Learner in acquiring a knowledge of the 
Portuguese Language. 

In a work of this kind, the task of the Compiler is, gencfVally, literal transla^ 
tion, or a simple comparison between the two Languages. This has been greatly 
neglected by Vieyra, who seems to have forgotten that the Student's object is to 
acquire, not the signification or meaning of the word, but the word itself, in its 
foreign garb. Definition and translation are two different ofiGices; and the Learner 
will find his progress little facilitated by reference to a book which merely defines 
the expression, without rendering that expression by a single corresponding word ; 
for example, if the English Learner consulted Vieyra's for the Portuguese term 
expressing ** amability," instead of finding, '' amabilidade," its Portuguese cor- 
responding word, he would read, *' a qualidade do que/az humapessoa amavel^" 
a knowledge of which he is already possessed, while his ignorance of the simple 
Portuguese expression for that quality is left as profound as ever. This so fre- 
quent error, and others numerous, though not of so much consequence, have been 
carefully and accurately corrected ; and every improvement that could tend to 
the perfection of this Edition has been introduced, with the hope that it will 
prove, if not a perfect and faultless one, at least one more free from defects than 
any that has been previously published.
